Right hand drive.
The DB2 is the model that took Class Victory and 3rd and 5th place overall at the 24 Heures du Mans 1951...and with this straight-6 engine (enlarged to 2.9 l.) Aston Martin took the first and second place at Le Mans in 1959.
This legendary model is one of the very few 2-seater of the Bristish make - along with the DB4 GT and the Bulldog supercar - most the Aston Martin are 2+2. The DB2 (not DB2/4) is the actual Aston Martin model that raced le Mans in the fifties, and it is therefore the source of the Aston Legend.
Furthermore, the DB2 is extremely rare, with approximately 300 Coupés ever built, of which only 250 were delivered in the more powerful and highly sought-after Vantage version.
This fine matching number automobile (chassis # LML/50/235, engine #VB6B/50/1089) was delivered new in France, to importer Majestic Autos, Paris. It was sold new in 1952, to a Monsieur Bloch, living in Paris, and has had since then two more owners, probably always remaining in France. The odometer shows only 11,500 miles, believed to be true.
This fine and rare automobile is in a unique original condition, even though it has been almost unused for over twenty five years. It was found to be amazingly still in running condition.
Engine is an authentic matching # factory Vantage VB6B type. Bodywork number has been found on the car. It’s incredible that a DB2 Vantage could remain forgotten for so long, and we are very proud to bring it back to the light.
Factory Build sheet available, showing orignal red piped grey upholstery and optional Alfin Drums. Eligible to Le Mans Classic, Mille Miglia among other major Historic Races.
